THE LOST GENERATION- VOGUE JAPAN

"Now in-between mouthfuls of icy confections, I've been mulling over Vogue Japan and and their far more daring approach to the vogue template."

Today was one of those brilliant days that started with a gym n' a swim and a catch up with my very awesome bestie Cayla, so productive in a personal way, plus we got Ice-creams after and we all know a Magnum before breakfast can only mean an excellent day to follow (yes, such a balanced lifestyle I lead, hem).

Now in-between mouthfuls of icy confections, I've been mulling over Vogue Japan and and their far more daring approach to the vogue template. It would seem they are (comparably) far more focused on designer-art than designer-artefacts (aka advertisement) and I'm unsure as to whether that's because of the varying cultural norms, or is it, maybe, the eccentric and oh so crackers Captain at the helm Ms. Anna Dello Russo herself? Having not yet worked it out, I'll settle a mixture of the two.

Fuelling the fire of the creative confusion is the 'cool' editorial I've included in this post and It's styled by one of my absolute favourite stylists- George Cortina. Is it high powered and glossy?- yes! (this is still vogue) however there is a story here, one seemingly worth telling and the models aren't quite cooky-cutter supermodels, they have a character which translates and makes it, well, just a smidge closer to a somewhat realistic fantasy ( I said fantasy didn't I?!)

So come hang out with the cool (slightly self-aware) kids in 
"The Lost Generation"
